A blessed woman 

Mary, the mother of Jesus, was blessed among women, but she was not the only one, and she was not the only Mary to be blessed by Jesus, 

“Now when He rose early on the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven demons” (Mark 16:9). 

This exceedingly grateful woman devoted herself to the Lord Jesus Christ, for He had cast seven demons out of her. 

Other women had gone with Mary Magdalene to the tomb of Jesus, but after an angel sent them away, Jesus later singled out this godly and holy woman to appear to her first. 

If you understand from what Jesus has delivered you, then devote yourself to Him entirely, and in so doing, He will reward you in ways you may never have imagined, just as He did with Mary Magdalene.
